Well done everyone for another amazing week learning online. We are really impressed with how much you are getting through and all the fabulous work you are submitting.
Remember you can always contact Mrs Lappin or myself through Google Hangouts if you need any help or support/
In English this week, we will be completing our story together and working on producing our own version of the story. In our video lesson we will plan out our narrative map for each plot point and talk about interesting vocabulary we might want to use. We will also be doing some guided reading activities based on a new story about Florence Nightingale, linking nicely to our superhero topic.
In Maths we will be continuing with money and thinking about paying for items and finding change. We will build upon our knowledge of values of coins and think about possible coin combinations we can use to purchase an item. We will also be using our addition and subtraction skills to solve problems involving finding change.
Our weekly overview can be found below, along with our topic web we have been working on since the beginning of this half term.
Well done for another brilliant week of online learning Year 3 - I have been so impressed with your hard work!
Next week, we will be continuing with our maths topic on Money and we will be starting to look at a new book linking with our Romans topic in our English lessons.
In our video lessons, we'll be working on converting between pence and pounds, and we'll be reading and answering questions about a poem.
Here is our Romans topic map and the list of daily tasks for next week 🙂

Click the buttons below to see our tasks for next week and also our Vikings topic web. These are also on Google Classroom as usual for you. We'll be writing our motivational speeches in English, and finishing off our work on area and perimeter in maths. In our video lessons we'll be doing some reading comprehension and also some mental maths games.
As we come the end of our third week of remote learning we just wanted to say how proud we are of all of you and how hard you are all working. We are reaching the end of our English work on The Lost Thing by Shaun Tan and we continue to be amazed by your writing. We hope to share some of your published work soon. In maths our focus has been on multiplication and division which we will be continuing next week.
As you all know, our topic this term is the Ancient Egyptians. This term you can choose work from our topic grid as part of your topic work and I am posting the grid here for reference as well as on Google Classroom.
Thank you to Mrs Mills for the wonderful Ancient Egypt music work she has added to Google Classroom and also to Mrs Price for her work on States of Matter for science. We have loved seeing your home experiments and how innovative you all are in finding resources with which to complete your experiments.
I have also attached a copy of the overview plan for next week's remote learning. Please remember to try to do your daily activities of some exercise (we should all ideally aim to be active for at least an hour per day), reading, times tables, handwriting and spellings. We appreciate that it's not always easy when working from home but, as with most things, the more you practise, the better you'll get!
We hope you all have a lovely weekend and look forward to seeing you next week.
Take care and best wishes,
Mrs Gold and Ms Griffiths
Well done Year 5 for all of your hard work last week. I saw some really work on Google Classroom!
This week we are sentence stacking Shackleton's motivational speech in English, and we are continuing with are and perimeter in maths. Have a look at the file above for more information, and keep an eye on Google Classroom for your assignments.
We began our unit of work on Poems to Perform by listening to the Rhythm of Life by Michael Rosen. We discussed the repeated phrases and rhythm of the poem. We then had a try at learning the poem. We created actions to accompany the words. We were really impressed with the performance after learning the poem in a short space of time.
In Science, we completed our investigation to find the material that would be best suited to repair a hole in the bucket. We used the 'Hole in my bucket' song to think more about the problem, planned what we were going to do as a class and then worked in teams to do the investigation. After the practical testing, we wrote a letter to Henry to explain our results.
In Jigsaw sharing assembly, we showed the rest of the school our gingerbread people which we had created during the 'Celebrating Difference' unit of work. We made a part of the person each week and had a focus for the ideas for each part such as identifying similarities and differences between ourselves and others.
We thoroughly enjoyed all of the Christmas fun in Year 1 this week including Christmas jumper day and the Christmas crafts provided by the Friends of Appleton School. Thank you to everyone who helped to make these activities so special.
This week has been yet another busy week in Thames Class. We have produced lots of lovely work and enjoyed lots of Christmas activities. I have been so impressed with the children's hard work this term and they have all earned a well deserved break over Christmas.
In English this week we completed the first draft of our newspaper articles based on the crimes committed by the Three Little Pigs. We then edited and improved our writing before producing our final drafts. Have a look at some of their awesome work below.
In Maths this week we started our new topic Position & Direction. We revisited coordinates in the first quadrant and produced some Christmas themed pictures. Here are a few examples of the children's work.
